Hey guys, I’ve started work on a possible William and Sly 3. Follow me on facebook for updates!


It feels good to be finally submitting this. I hope you all have fun! Merry Xmas. :3


The game should save automatically, but opening the map will do a manual write to the HD. This might cause a moment of lag on some computers. So, DON'T PANIC! lol

If you want to make sure your game saves, open the map before you quit. It should be fine even if you don't, but a tester had an issue so I threw a flush statement in as a failsafe. :3

the old, the new, and the hidden bs

i like the idea of the game being 3D but the 2D had a hint of simplicicty which alot of people liked and about 75% of the peole that play this went wtf about the 3D. wish there was a 2D option o_o. any way the item searching is really annoying since i literally went everywhere to find just one thing that everyone missed.

The problem with 2D is that I really hate making it, lol. As long as the 3D characters don't grate on your eyes it's a success in my book. :P

never, EVER have i seen such gorgeous, awe-inspiring artwork and detail
this game gives SHAME to every other game that has ever existed
you,sir are an artist
i would be ecstatic to see more work like this in the future
the game is, in every way superior to others i need to get a thesaurus just to continue the praise i feel this game deserves
i love the idea of this game as well as the gameplay itself. Both are just remarkable
thank you for giving birth to this masterpiece

You are beautiful.

Your games exhibit beauty and captivation at so many different levels. To me, I don't even need to really know the story. Your highly explorative worlds with strange objects to find are magical in itself. But, I do remember playing the first one and even after finishing it I'd come back just to frolic around in the ambience of this forest world. It's all very relaxing and the various improvements in this next part just sparkle with perfection. It makes me curious about William and Sly's relationship and stories even more. This beautiful. You are beautiful.

P.S. William is beautiful. Him shirtless lounging and reading a book makes for one sexy scholar.

I loved everything about this

Masterful storytelling, beautiful visuals, calming music, entertaining and intriguing gameplay. Without a doubt the most beautiful and exceptional submission I have ever seen on Newgrounds.

great game

I very much like the map aspect and like a nice relaxing game. One problem is that it does lack any real story or reason to do things you do besides a brief intro and ending.

The game itself had great graphics and decent sound. The jump mechanic was easy to learn and didn't require much skill to play at top level.

My biggest complaint is the map doesn't really show that you explore an area real well. It only shows if you explore a spot if you find a landmark such as a chest, pixie, rock or temple. If you add some gray to signify you haven't explore an area it would help tremendously.

I got everything but it did take about 30 minutes. I got almost everything in about 15 and spent 15 more minutes trying to find the last few things. For the people who are truly stuck you might want to have a map at your site that shows where everything is.

There wasn't much to complain about the game itself except very little story aspect and not to much skill involve(more a trial a patience and exploring). The graphics are probably one of the best on the site and the sound decent enough. If there was a more indepth story I would of given it a 10

There's a pretty involved story in the journal pages. Press "B" to see it. :)
